BOMBSHELL INC. is proud to announce the release of it's NEW & INNOVATIVE method for solving an age old problem with BMX race frames. The PATENT PENDING VPS™ (V-Brake Position System) allows the use of a 20" x 1 1/8" or 1 3/8 TIRE to be used in a PRO SIZED frame. It also can be used to accept a 20" x 1.5" or 1 3/4" TIRE in an EXPERT or SMALLER sized frame. The VPS™ can also be used on Cruiser sized rims as well.

The new G-sport Ribcage rim is finally ready, it has passed final quality control. They now are available in 48H Chrome. Hard Anodised finish and 36's are on the next shipment. The price is a little higher than some other rims but this reflects the special material and finishes. The material used is around 20% stronger than even the 7000 series aluminium used for rims. And the hard anodising gives a black finish that performs nearly as well as chrome. Spoke holes are guaranteed not to pull through no matter what… Final production weights are 482g (1.06lbs) for hard anodised and 525g (1.15lbs) for chrome. The packaging is pretty cool too. We managed to find a way to use cardboard instead of plastic, this actually gives more protection to the rim during shipping and is better for the environment too.
